Hybrid Intelligence

In the same funding round as the Esdit programme, another closely connected gravitation programme has been awarded: Hybrid Intelligence (HI). The two programmes have since initiated activities to establish connections, since: 1) addressing ethical aspects forms an important part of creating hybrid intelligent systems that truly support people, and 2) Artificial Intelligence is an important socially disruptive technology considered in the Esdit project.

 A committee has been formed to support, stimulate and sometimes initiate HI-Esdit joint activities regarding research exchange and collaboration, societal engagement and strategic collaboration between the projects. Such activities could range from organization of joint seminars and workshops, to visiting researchers, training programs for PhDs, writing joint white papers, development of living labs, as well as research collaboration between project members. The committee currently consists of:  

  • Wendy Aartsen (project manager HI)
  • Catholijn Jonker (HI/Esdit, responsible HI MT member)
  • Birna van Riemsdijk (HI/Esdit, co-chair)
  • Ilaria Tiddi (HI) 
  • Sander de Boer (programme manager Esdit)
  • Sven Nyholm (Esdit)
  • Ibo van de Poel (Esdit/HI, co-chair)
  • Wijnand IJsselsteijn (Esdit) 

If you would like to know more, you are most welcome to contact co-chairs Birna van Riemsdijk and Ibo van de Poel, or any other committee member.
